this is grey. i went to college with grey back in my interior design days, and he was always one of my favorite people to have class with. a great eye for design, a witty sense of humor, and always the best dressed. and this is amber. i met her for the first time at this shoot, but she was so sweet, also impeccably dressed, and a great compliment to grey’s personality. as she said, their personalities are the perfect balance of art/design and science (he’s an interior designer/graphic designer. she is a nurse). shortly after college he and amber met on a fun night out with friends – now they have a house, a dog named milton and a cat named jorja.
i hadn’t heard from grey much since college, just a few facebook messages and posts here and there. i was ecstatic when he contacted me to possibly photograph their wedding. it’s going to be a small, intimate affair at a very unique venue in minneapolis called warehouse winery. the venue is a mixture of industrial (think exposed brick and stainless steel) and eclectic and antique looking pieces (think elephant skulls, wine barrels, and furniture). oh, and their wedding date is 12.31.2012….metalics, neutrals, and sparklers! can’t wait:)
their engagement shoot was beyond fun and filled with sooooo many different locations and backgrounds! grey was awesome because the shoot ended up lasting about 5 hours and normally guys are done after about 1 :/ …that doesn’t usually happen but between visiting the venue and shooting locations, as well as catching up with an old friend and getting to know his lovely fiancé, those hours just added right up!! thank you so much for such a great afternoon, you two! i can’t wait for your wedding day and to see all the amazing details and personal touches you add to it to make it your own!
